Or

by Heide McAlister-Bates

Softly,
softly
the light of the morning
touches my face
gently opening my eyes
to the dawn
or
it could have been
the feeling of your fingers
on my skin
that awakened me
stroking me
softly,
softly.

Heide, I feel so lulled by your words. It's funny, morning for me is not like this. I'm more of a night person. Maybe it's the fact that once I get out of bed, I'm non-stop until...? The circular content of the poem (starting and ending the same way) almost makes me think of the sun. Beautiful!

The "or" of this is terrific, as are the two possibilities - both sensual and a wonderful way to wake up!

this poem beams the morning light into your poetic prism of imagery...lovely read, stunning in few lines, succinct and delicious...peace, jewels

Yes, the softness, the warmth, what ever the source. What matters is the association. simply beautiful.

I am the "last living morning person". You put into words so well what I feel in the morning. Very well done Heide; very beautiful write.

It frightens the c*** out of me when somebody does that to me... I'm not a morning person but I know what you mean :)

perhaps, maybe. it's both.

What a great way to wake up. No one does that for me. Maybe that's why I'm not a morning person!? Well described Heide, and thanks also for the comment/compliment on my latest.

That's the kind of morning I can only dream of. The feeling of warmth and delight in this poem is very contagious.
